    Sorry, but users can't delete accounts and the forum admins don't delete accounts because doing so removes all posts made by that user, which will also affect the flow of posts made by other users within the same threads.

    I thought so ...
    I'm switching users now, but I won't be using both accounts simultaneously.

    It causes confusion when a single user posts from multiple accounts so to make sure that doesn't happen, I'll ban this account and you can post from your new account.

    Thanks for the feedback.
